Could Arkham Asylum Domain Registrations Hint at the Next Batman Film?

by SuperHeroHype

January 13, 2013

There's a potential tease at a future Batman project today as Fusible points out that someone has been registering more than a dozen similar domain names, ranging from ArkhamUniverse.com to BatmanArkhamBegins.com. Although it's pure speculation at this point, some fans have already theorized that these URLs might point to the next big screen adventure of the Dark Knight.

The full list of registered domain names reads as follows:

arkhamuniverse.com (Arkham Universe)
batmanarkahmuniverse.com (Batman Arkham Universe)
batmanarkhamarises.com (Batman Arkham Arises)
batmanarkhambegins.com (Batman Arkham Begins)
batmanarkhamdarkknight.com (Batman Arkham Dark Knight)
batmanarkhamknight.com (Batman Arkham Knight)
batmanarkhamlegend.com (Batman Arkham Legend)
batmanarkhamlegends.com (Batman Arkham Legends)
batmanarkhamnight.com (Batman Arkham Night)
batmanarkhamorigins.com (Batman Arkham Origins)
batmanarkhamstories.com (Batman Arkham Stories)
darkknightarkham.com (Dark Knight Arkham)
dcarkhamuniverse.com (DC Arkham Universe)
dcarkhamverse.com (DC Arkhamverse)
thearkhamuniverse.com (The Arkham Universe)

Every one of the URLs was registered through an anonymous third-party vendor, MarkMonitor, a company that Warner Bros. has used in the past to register official film websites. That being said, the company is a popular one for other studios as well, as evidenced by Paramount Pictures' registration for Star Trek Into Darkness last year.

Although rumors have persisted that the next Batman film could be inspired by the Arkham Ayslum video game series, the possibility is equally likely that the new list of titles are being put aside for a video game sequel. Regardless of what this project turns out to be, check back for updates as they become available.

I suspect those will be for the next video game in the Arkham series.

I dunno Julius. I thought they said the next game was a JLA prequel...

... but it will still be under the "Batman:Arkham..." banner to maximize franchise sales I would think ...

Katee Sackhoff Wants to Play Harley Quinn in a Batman Film

by SuperHeroHype

August 21, 2013

Harley Quinn is one of the most popular villains in the DC Universe and has always been a favorite among fans to appear in a live action Batman film. Will this ever happen? It's tough to say, but should the time come that Warner Bros. is looking for a Harley Quinn, we can now point them in the right direction.

In an interview with Esquire, "Battlestar Galactica" and Riddick star Katee Sackhoff said that she really wants to play Harley Quinn in a film.

"I love Harley Quinn. I do. I just love it. It's not been done before. It's this fantastic mix. I mean, it's like the female Joker. Who wouldn't want to do that? Quite potentially — it's not around so I wouldn't feel the weight of it — I'd probably sell my first born at this point to do that."

Batman's next film appearance will be in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, slated for release in the summer of 2015, but after that he's going to need his own film. Why not Joker and Harley Quinn?

Do you think Sackhoff would be good for the role? Sound off below!

She might be good for the role. Unfortunately, by the time they actually make a Batman film with Harley in it, she would be too old to be Harley.

They could wait ten years to make the movie and Katee Sackoff STILL wouldn't be too old for the part. Don't fall for Hollywood's ageist bullcr-p.

Yeah-- Nolan can screw her up 10 years from now just as easily as he could next year-- He would be the only person to actually make me long for the new 52 Suicide Squad Harley.

The list of actresses who have been vocal about wanting to play Harley is much like a Hollywood Engenue who's who.

Kristen Bell has been vocal about wanting to do it since somewhere in the midst of Veronica Mars.

Honestly, aside from getting the voice right, I don't think there would be too many young-ish actresses who couldn't do the role justice.

A live action movie set in Arkham could be pretty cool. Batman locked up with a lot of the people he put away. What's not to love? Heck, just crib the plot from the first video game.
